Eating Healthy

Like most, i've started off the year wanting to take better care of myself, eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, trying not to worry about things i can't change...etc. So, today i went for a 30 minute walk after the boys got on the bus, with my headphones and i felt great afterwards. I went to the grocery store this evening looking for some fruit, these tangerines were looking so BRIGHT i decided to bring them home. I hope they taste as good as they appear.
For those out there doing the same, stay the course, the benefits are worth the commitment.

I Remember the day we met.

1/4/96, Happy 15th Birthday LJ! (our oldest son) I remember the day we met like it was yesterday. Exciting, overwhelming, you changed our lives. Daddy and I are so proud of you. I was happy to bake these cupcakes for you today, and I couldn't wait to take a picture of them as well. Love you babe!

Back to the routine....

Its been a long couple of days, getting everyone ready to go back to school and work after a fun filled holiday break. The gift i gave myself was to NOT do laundry for a week! I appreciated the "time away" from the mountain of laundry i tackle each week, however, 11 loads were waiting for me this weekend..oh well...back to the routine. Towels are always what i do last, so here's a toast to ME for getting through it all! Now, i can focus more on my photog business during the day and I guess, i'll want to throw in some other housework too before it turns into another pile of something else...LOL!

Sunday Morning Breakfast

Doesn't that look yummy? Well, it was...Sunday morning breakfast is the only breakfast meal we all sit down and eat together. My husband usually does the cooking, its become a routine we all look forward to.
I always wanted to have a family full of traditions and Lee and I have managed to establish quite a few over the years.
I took this picture with my new canan 50 mm f1/4 lens that i got for christmas. I just love how crisp the pictures come out. I can't resist, i'll be taking pictures every day....YEAH!!

Happy New Year 2011!

Here we go....its 2011, Happy New Year! My husband Lee and I rang in the new year with our friends/neighbors Connie and Stacy. We don't usually do the new years celebration party scene, but this year we decided to start the year off differently. The day before the party my girlfriend Connie sent me a text asking us to bring our wedding champagne flutes to toast the new year. I thought this was a great idea, since its been years since we used them and what a great reason. I thought using these glasses would remind us of our beginning of our life together. Lee and I will be celebrating eighteen years of marriage this! Its truly been a roller coaster ride, new jobs, two new homes, three handsome sons, laughter, tears, but we've been truly blessed and I'm very grateful to be able to experience it all.
I'm also very excited to learn more about running a successful photography business and I look forward to sharing my portraits with all of you.
photographically yours, behind the lens.
